Add about 10-15 drops of any of these essential oils: Eucalyptus, Melaleuca, Rosemary, Lavender, Clove, Cinnamon, Peppermint (decide what scents you love) to a baking soda paste (about 1-2 cups of baking soda with about 1/2 c water until it’s pasty like putty). Place in a pretty silicone muffin tray to dry for about 30 minutes. Pop out and store in a pretty bag with a ribbon. (Beware use with children. These are “hot” oils and could irritate lungs.)

I just made the Balancing Perfume Blend. I then multiplied by four and added one ounce Distilled Water and one ounce Witch Hazel to a two ounce dark glass spray bottle. Just shake and spray and you have an instant Room Fragrance Spray. I also made the Luxurious Exfoliating Body Scrub. It smelled heavenly and left my skin super soft. I’m thinking of using the olive oil and salt blend as a base in a jar by the tub and customizing it to my needs. Then I can add specific blends to my silver dollar sized scrub like Muscle Love Essential Oil Blend if I have sore muscles, or a headache blend when my head hurts. I could add Anti-Fungal Blend for Athlete’s Foot, etc… The possibilities are endless. Thanks for inspiring me!

Truth be told, when was pregnant with my second daughter, my skin went haywire – I was a dried, red, itchy, flaky mess. ON my face.  It was horrible. Fortunately, I concocted an amazing blend of oils that literally transformed my dull complexion into glowing. I still use it every single day {and my mom swears by it too}. Frankincense gives this blend an extra boost of anti-aging awesomeness, cause well, I’m not getting any younger.  Get the recipe here.   

Commercial soaps have so much junk in them, are loaded with synthetic fragrances and chemicals and many are drying and irritating to the skin. Not this one, AND it’s made without using lye! Homemade soap is a CLASSIC gift – one that never gets old and the scent possibilities are endless. I love this one using dried lavender and essential oils. Grab the tutorial here. 


If your child hasn’t yet – or is just starting to – get into essential oils, the best way to help them on their journey is to get them their own diffuser for their room! Given that they’re old enough to not pull on the cords or spill the thing – that way, they can decide on their own which oils they’d like to diffuse; they can refill it, clean it, and take care of it all on their own. This one makes for an interesting gift for sure, and also helps you along the way of teaching independence to your child.
I love the smell of peppermint, lavender, orange and eucalyptus. they have many uses use it in diffuser, in shampoo put a few drops in a cotton ball and out it near your pillow will help u relax and sleep. These oils based on their smell in comparison to other brands that I have used are of good quality. It is easy to store in the same box that it came in the bottles lids are perfect to use a few drops at a time.
The smell of fresh laundry is amazing, but many times loaded with synthetic fragrances and chemicals that can wreak havoc on your skin and health. Make your own laundry detergent this holiday season with essential oils and share with your loved ones! Nothing says “I love you” like laundry detergent, right? I kid, I kid, buuut…some people dig these kinds of gifts. I’m one such person, but I’m not the definition of normal – just ask my darling husband. PLUS, it’s so easy to make, non-toxic, and cost effective. Learn how to make it here. 
Recently purchased this product and am going to buy one for each of my daughters. It is easy to use and is very quiet. Makes my bedroom smell great and the lights can be used or not. My husband and I use [[ASIN:B01MF7E0ME Lunexa – All Natural Daily Sleep Formula for Deep Relaxing Sleep and Stress Relief]] after a stressful day. The diffusers provide a calm environment for relaxation. We took them to our doctor and he said they were safe for us to take every day. We take them about an hour or so before we are ready to go to bed. The one thing is when you start to feel tired do not fight them just go to bed.

In my 5ml headache roller I use: 7 drops each of Panaway, Pepermint and Frankincense. I have daily migraines and this has helped reduce the need for migraine meds to just a couple times a month. I start rolling on my forehead, temples and back of my head/neck area as soon as I feel pain. I use every couple of hours as needed! Just double the amount of drops for each and fill with your carrier oil ( I use fractionated coconut oil)!

Hi there! The reason that you need to use dark bottles is because of the Essential Oils that go into the recipes. Essential Oils are AMAZING, but really sensitive to light. Using a dark colored glass bottle or jar is what helps to keep them safe. If you do use something that is clear make sure to store it in a cool, dry, and dark place so that it isn’t heated and definitely no direct sunlight! Also, if you use plastic the essential oils will eventually eat away at the plastic because they are potent. When I use a plastic container I only use it once. You can find storage bottles and supplies at abundanthealth4u.com
This fun an kid-appropriate Unicorn Essential Oil Diffuser is a perfect starter unit for your kid. It has exactly ONE button for operation, so it is super simple and definitely kid-proof in that regard. It is also made of high-quality, grippy plastic materials so it won’t slip through those little fingers too easily. It’s an honest 5/ out of 5 stars little diffuser and you can find it on Amazon here.
Regarding sore joints, my husband is a runner, and I have used various concoctions of lavender, lemon, and peppermint for his feet, especially when he was trail running long distances. We would put the oils in an espsom salt foot bath and he would find relief. As a rub, I like adding clove and helichrysum to a mix of lavender and/or peppermint. (Sorry I don’t have any specific recipes off-hand but found or altered many of mine from “The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy” book by Valerie Ann Worwood.) I hope this information helps and doesn’t further confuse.

So this year, I’m inspired to DIY much of my holiday gift-giving using one of my favorite things – essential oils! Not just any essential oils though – 100% pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils. I’ve been slightly obsessed with essential oils this year (and reusing essential oil bottles), so naturally, compiling my list of DIY holiday gift inspiration included lots of oily goodness. 

So if you are like me and want to be frugal in your gift giving but really want to share something that can be helpful to a friend or loved one, I know you will love this post with some homemade gifts using essential oils. You know I am not a big DIYer and really stretch myself when I do, but I have found when I take the time to make gifts myself they mean more to me and I know they are loved by those receiving the gifts.
I ordered this as a gift for my wife because she is an avid essential oils person. We use oils in our house daily for about anything you can think of. From cleaning to illness, the oils really do come in handy. I have been made a believer. That being said my wife loves the Maromalife Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser necklace. It lets her use and take whatever oil she is fond of for the day with her and able to diffuse the oil throughout the day. The different color lava stones are nice because she is able to switch up the stone to match her outfit, or just match the oil. She will use certain colors for certain oils. We like the lava stones as a diffuser better than the little canister diffuser necklace we have tried in the past. They were not very consistent with the strength and ... full review
